Star Trek game for iPhone
Electronic Arts has debuted a new Star Trek game for the iPhone and iPod touch, designed to capitalize on the latest movie. The action game has players captain the USS Enterprise on a host of missions, during which Kirk and Spock make appearances and help gamers along. Players also fight against and alongside ships from series fiction, such as the Keldon, Valdore and K’tinga.
In order to maneuver the Enterprise, players can either tilt the accelerometer or touch on-screen controls. To destroy enemy ships, players simply tap to use the phaser, or select one of a collection of unlockable superweapons. Additional characters players encounter include Chekhov, Sulu, Scotty and Uhura, along with the Klingon, Romulan and Cardassian races.
Star Trek is currently on sale via the App Store and priced at $5.
